justice department in washington. it's driven by the local u.s. attorneys. it's the local u.s. attorney here in melissa haig and others around the state who are hyper aggressive and they're not collaborating with city and county government who is are regulating medical encourage in marijuana in a responsible way. what obama is doing is he's showing a failure of leadership. 's not leading the aggressive attacks, but he's not pulling back on ways he could be doing on what they are doing. >> legalization versus decriminalization. i hear talks where it's one and the same. we don't say we're liberals but progressives. is there a major distinction? >> there is. basically legalization refers to more or less regulating marijuana like alcohol, which is what colorado and washington are proposing to do, and what this marijuana initiative did in california two years ago. that gets rid of the black market it brings in quality control and ultimately it's the right thing to do. decriminalization is a step in that direction. it's saying that it's still he will legal to produce or grow a large

period of time. it happened in the u.s. and happened in other countries. it is that sense different from a garden-variety of recession if you want to call it that. melissa: peter, do you agree with that? we have ceo's on the all the time say that is the not the problem. they are held back by government regulation and too much debt and they blame in short for the president that we don't have a "v"-shaped recovery. >> i think there is element of that. deleveraging stopped about 20 months ago and consumer spding took off in the recovery and the recovery was strong in the beginning. so much we spent went abroad to china. we had currency imbalance. all that on imported oil. all that is lost purchasing power. my view this is not a typical business cycle. the u.s. economy is structurally broken and some of the things this administration has done made it worse. like the banking relations in new york don't fix the banks. they make it impossible for them to bank. and so my feeling is that there is some arguments on both sides but i'm not very optimistic that if mr. obama's reelected much of t

109 people are said to have died in the u.s. and another 60 were killed in the caribbean. as of this morning 2.9 million customers remain without power across 15 states and the washington, d.c. the economic losses are nearing $50 billion. flooding of new york subways and commuter train tunnels and loss of business accounts for much of that estimate. with an election just a few days away the political media industrial complex briefly ground to a halt and then somewhat awkwardly cranked back to life with mitt romney turning a campaign event into a relief rally. president obama heading back out on the trail and pundits growing more and more comfortable speculating consequences of the disaster. local and area officials had to make practical decisions and give emergency briefings and address the anxiety of their constituents. governor chris christie seemed to suggest he wasn't taking the election into consideration. >> is there any possibility that governor romney may go to new jersey to tour some of the damage with you? >> i have no idea. nor am i the least bit concerned or interested. >

talked about the u.s. economy and the presidential election. >> this weekend, millions of americans are still picking up the pieces from one of the worst storms in our history. i toured new jersey with governor chris cristie and witness the devastation firsthand. it is heartbreaking. families have lost loved ones. entire communities have been wiped away. even the first responders to repeatedly put themselves in harm's way have had losses of their own. today, i ask everyone to keep them in your prayers. as president, and promised them this. your country will be there for as long as it takes to recover and rebuild. throughout the week, i have been in constant contact with governors and mayors in affected areas who are doing an excellent job in extraordinary circumstances. we owe the first responders to have been working around-the- clock our deepest gratitude. our first priority is to make sure if the communities have everything they need to recover from the storm. i ordered that resources be made available as soon as they are needed and instructed my team not to let red tape and bure
